Reality check

06/09/19 – Reflections! “Perfection is never attainable, but if we chase perfection we can attain excellence”. Vince Lombardi said this. So whatever you have been to do for a Long time now. Kwambakofye! Fikalaisova kuntanshi. There will never be a perfect or appropriate or convenient time to start. Start now and by practicing and doing it, ukalakontolola, realise mistakes and strive to correct or perform better towards perfection thereby accidentally or reaching excellence.

What can you do, that you’ve forgotten you can do? What can you do, that you’ve never known you could do? What would cease to be impossible if you could stop assuming it to be impossible? What would you achieve if you were convinced you could achieve it?

You are loved just for being who you are, just for existing. You don’t have to do anything to earn it. Your shortcomings, your lack of self-esteem, physical perfection, or social and economic success – none of that matters. No one can take this love away from you, and it will always be here. – Ram Dass

Reality is more than what has already been, or what is now, or what you’re sure of. The most exciting and valuable part of reality is what is possible. Your possibilities are just as real as your memories, your doubts, and your assumptions. Which will you choose to believe, to express, to follow into the future?

We encounter and enter our richest, most humanly defining experiences by way of a tear in the fabric of things, because we are running late, or because we recognize, across a crowded room, a face whose lack of perfection allows a unique light to shine through and to stir us with uncommon wonder. – Eugene Kennedy

Instead of focusing on the obstacles, you can decide to see the opportunities inside the obstacles. Instead of being dismayed at what has happened, be encouraged and excited about what is now possible. Open yourself beyond your fears, beyond your doubts, beyond the excuses and assumptions. Open yourself to the best of what is possible, and make that your central reality.

I believe that a trusting attitude and a patient attitude go hand in hand. You see, when you let go and learn to trust God, it releases joy in your life. And when you trust God, you’re able to be more patient. Patience is not just about waiting for something… it’s about how you wait, or your attitude while waiting. God grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference in Christ Jesus name. Amen 🙏 Stay blessed folks
